Weekend Link Love – Edition 229

Research of the Week

A new study [7] (of old, “missing” data) found that reducing saturated fats (to below 10% of energy intake) from animal fats and increasing omega-6 linoleic acid from polyunsaturated margarines (to 15% of energy intake) increased the risk of death from all causes, including cardiovascular disease. Okay, but those are just clinical endpoints. Who cares about those? I want to know what happened to their cholesterol levels.

An “active lifestyle approach” (raking leaves, gardening, walking to the store) was just as beneficial [8] as a “structured exercise approach” in reducing metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, those in the “active lifestyle” group were far more likely to get the recommended 30 minutes of “exercise” a day.

Interesting Blog Posts

Dr. Andro over at Suppversity explains [9] why the deload week might need to graduate to deload weeks.

Media, Schmedia

The NY Times story [10] of how a desperate mom used Primal-esque dietary changes (including gluten removal and omega-3 inclusion) to beat back a severe form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis in her kid that didn’t seem to respond to drugs.

And yet in the same breath, the NY Times blog discounts the utility [11] of the gluten-free “fad.”

It seems humans have been making soup [12] – or at least employing leakproof cooking vessels – for much longer than previously thought.

Everything Else

Upcoming PrimalCon presenter Tracy Barksdale’s got a new natural movement/parkour gym in the works called True Nature Training. If you’re near Austin, enjoy moving, or simply want to help a fellow warrior in the fight for Primal health, consider donating a few bucks to the campaign [13].

Last week, I sat down with Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity to have a chat about my personal vision of fitness. Give it a listen [14].
